The festival hosts a wide variety of activities for all ages, including arts, crafts, music, sports, amusement rides, food and oyster shucking. Milford Oyster Festival, sometimes shortened as "Oysterfest," is an annual cultural festival held on the third Saturday of August throughout the city of Milford, Connecticut. Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Major founders of the oysterfest include Diano Nytko, first chairperson of the Milford Chamber of Commerce, and Robert N. Cooke, for whom the Bob Cooke Skin Cancer Foundation was named. The first Milford Oyster Festival was held on the Milford Green and Fowler Field on August 23, 1975. As a major tourist attraction—billed as the largest one-day festival in the New England region and listed among the top 10 annual events in Connecticut—the Oyster Festival draws over 50,000 attendees each year. It is planned by the non-profit organization Annual Milford Oyster Festival, inc. (AMOF), which is run largely by volunteers.
